Not sure. A lot of the info is scanned from from your system (you can decline the scan). You could could always visit the site and see if you can manually do it, but I doubt it.

With regards to downloadable releases, I'll always get the physical versions. I don't like downloading my games unless absolutely necessary. FEAR 2 for example was a game that even though you bought the physical edition, it STIL had to be downloaded from STEAM. Wasnít thrilled with that one but oh well.

BTW another "benefit" of steam is that you can actually "activate" a non-steam purchased game, example Prey, with steam. All you have to do is have a valid product ID number that follows steam's protocols, register it, and the game is now a steam version. Thatís a nice feature.

I thought about doing this with Bioshock 1, but there were all sorts of reported issues with steam's version at the time.

OK. But I do know you can activate games, that's my point.

So what's the implication for modding?
Can you mod steam games?

I have nearly 200 mods on both Oblivion and Fallout 3 so I would hate the idea of not being able to mod New Vegas.

I never use steam as I get ripped off, you can always get games cheaper from places like the hut and play.com

I certainly won't be paying over the odds for a crippled game if I can't mod it.

As for the convenience of steam, I can install Fallout 3 in 5 minutes, it would take over an hour to download with a 10Mb connection, Hardly convenient.

Sounds better than Amazon's Pre-Order November release date - Amazon.com: Fallout: New Vegas Collector's Edition: Pc: Video Games

Fallout New Vegas (Pre-Orders)
So, I'm confused about this pre-order. I went to Gamestop yesterday to place my pre-order. My intentions were to pre-order the Colloctors Edition of the game itself as well as the hard cover CE Strategy Guide. (would go nicely with the CE Boxed game I think :) ) Here is my confusion.
